For Global Independence

Kim Il Sung (1912-1994), eternal President of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea, advanced an idea on making the whole world independent.
In April 1982 he formulated that the independent world means a world where all forms of dominationism and colonialism have been wiped out and the sovereignty of all countries and nations is fully granted. In September 1988 he elucidated that the essence of the struggle for making the world independent is to establish an international relationship based on independence and make the international community democratic.
He also clarified the main target and the driving force in the struggle for global independence. Defining as the main target of the struggle the imperialist and dominationist forces including the US imperialism, he illuminated that all the anti-imperialist forces that advocate independence across the world should firmly unite and fight resolutely against the imperialist reactionary forces.
President Kim Il Sung positively encouraged the people in the colonial countries in their struggle for national liberation.
He met numerous revolutionaries and fighters from many countries of the world, explained the strategies and tactics on the struggle for national liberation in their countries and solved all complicated problems and difficulties.
Agostinho Neto, former president of Angola, said that as he fought with strategies and tactics indicated by President Kim Il Sung he was able to drive out the colonialists and achieve independence of the country. Samora Machel, former president of Mozambique, said that they could win victory as the great hero Comrade Kim Il Sung showed them the road ahead.
President Kim Il Sung rendered selfless material aid and moral support to the newly independent countries in their nation-building.
The developing countries who achieved independence through the national liberation struggle had been groping for the ways to build a new society, but in vain. Taking advantage of this, the imperialists attempted to intervene in the internal affairs of these countries, under the pretext of “aid.” The newly independent countries were liable to be caught again in the trap of the imperialists. Many heads of state who tried to find their way out paid attention to the DPRK that was building socialism successfully under the banner of independence. Leaders of many developing countries including Uganda, Equatorial Guinea, Angola, Tanzania, Madagascar, Guyana and Malta, visited the DPRK.
President Kim Il Sung informed them of the valuable experiences the DPRK had gained. He added that they should not mechanically imitate those of the DPRK whole, but apply them in conformity with the specific situations of their countries, just as man swallows foods that are sweet, and, if not, spits them out. He saw to it that they saw the successes and experiences the Korean people gained in several sectors with their own eyes.
The greatest achievement he gained for the independence of the world was that he strengthened and developed the non-aligned movement.
The non-aligned movement, which emerged as an independent political force on the stage of history in the 1960s, faced the danger of decline owing to several challenges and difficulties entering the 1970s. At that time some developing countries hesitated or refused to be involved in the movement, watching the faces of big countries and the West. In order to strengthen and develop the movement into a powerful anti-imperialist independent force and enhance its role he paid a visit to former Yugoslavia, one of the founding countries of the non-aligned movement, in June 1975. He ensured that the DPRK joined the movement in August 1975, followed by many countries which supported and admired it. In the latter half of the 1970s the number of the non-aligned countries increased to nearly 100.
Many heads of state of the non-aligned countries requested President Kim Il Sung to take the lead in the non-aligned movement. Josip Broz Tito, president of former Yugoslavia, visited the DPRK in his advanced age of over 80, in August 1977, to express his thanks to President Kim Il Sung who saved the non-aligned movement from danger and said that the President must play the leading role in expanding and developing the movement in the future.
President Kim Il Sung showed his close concern on developing the world’s socialist movement for global independence.
He had long emphasized that world socialist movement should achieve genuine cohesion and development based on independence. He launched energetic activities for the reconstruction and a fresh upsurge of the socialist movement, holding high the banner of independence, in the face of collapse of socialism in former Soviet Union and other east European countries.
The achievements gained by President Kim Il Sung for making the world independent will shine forever.


Kim Jong Un Visits Fatherland Liberation War Martyrs Cemetery
Pyongyang, July 28 (KCNA) -- Kim Jong Un, first secretary of the Workers' Party of Korea, first chairman of the National Defence Commission of the DPRK and supreme commander of the Korean People's Army, visited the Fatherland Liberation War Martyrs Cemetery to pay tribute to the fallen fighters of the KPA at 10 a.m. on Sunday on the occasion of the 61st anniversary of the victory in the great Fatherland Liberation War.
After he arrived at the cemetery, the chief of a guard of honor of the Ground, Naval, Air and Anti-Air Forces of the KPA and the Worker-Peasant Red Guards shouted "Present arms!" in the memory of the fallen fighters.
A floral basket in the name of Kim Jong Un was placed before the cemetery.
Also laid before it were floral baskets in the name of the General Staff, General Political Bureau, Ministry of the People's Armed Forces, the services and corps-level units of the KPA and bunches of flowers.
He together with other visitors paid silent tribute to the fallen fighters.
He went round the cemetery.
He said that the victory in the past Fatherland Liberation War is associated with the heroic exploits performed by the known and unknown martyrs who courageously turned out in the battles to defend the country in hearty response to the order of President Kim Il Sung, underscoring the need to respect the participants in the war as revolutionary forerunners and glorify their revolutionary spirit and feats generation after generation.
He noted that the spirit of defending the country displayed in the period of the great Fatherland Liberation War serves as a valuable mental legacy of the Korean revolution, underlining the need to deeply instill the popular heroism and patriotic spirit displayed by the army and people of the DPRK in the war into the youth and children and people.
He was accompanied by Hwang Pyong So, Ri Yong Gil, Hyon Yong Chol and other commanding officers of the KPA, executive members of the KPA Committee of the WPK and commanding officers of the services and corps-level units of the KPA.

Kim Jong Un Enjoys Performance Given by State Merited Chorus
Pyongyang, July 28 (KCNA) -- Supreme Commander of the Korean People's Army Kim Jong Un, first secretary of the Workers' Party of Korea and first chairman of the National Defence Commission of the DPRK, together with KPA service personnel, enjoyed a performance given by the State Merited Chorus at the People's Theatre to celebrate the anniversary of the war victory.
He appeared in the auditorium of the theatre.
He warmly waved back to the cheers of the audience and congratulated them significantly celebrating the day of war victory.
Put on the stage were male choruses "July 27 March" and "Long Live Generalissimo Kim Il Sung", orchestra and serial songs "Respects to Victors of Great Years", male duet and male chorus "The General Is Great Defender", male choruses "I Will Remain Your Son Forever" and "Revolutionary Armed Forces Uphold Leadership of Marshal Only".
The performers truthfully represented the fact that the undying feats performed by President Kim Il Sung in winning the victory in the war will shine long in the history of the country.
They also sang high praises of leader Kim Jong Il, stressing that under his leadership the DPRK won one victory after another in the fierce confrontation with the U.S. imperialists without gun report.
They made a truthful artistic presentation replete with high militant spirit of the fact that the army and people of the DPRK are firmly defending the sovereignty of the country and eternally glorifying the history of war victory which started in Mt. Paektu thanks to the gifted wisdom, matchless grit and outstanding leadership of Kim Jong Un.
Kim Jong Un congratulated the State Merited Chorus on its successful performance.
He expressed expectation and conviction that the creators and artistes of the chorus would as ever dynamically conduct revolutionary and militant performing activities and thus more powerfully encourage the army and people of the DPRK in their efforts to bring earlier the final victory in the confrontation with the U.S. and build a thriving nation by dint of the unbreakable great army-people unity.
Among the audience were Hwang Pyong So, Ri Yong Gil, Hyon Yong Chol, Pyon In Son, So Hong Chan, Pak Yong Sik, Ryom Chol Song, Jo Kyong Chol and other commanding officers of the KPA, executive members of the KPA Committee of the WPK and commanding officers of the services and corps-level units of the KPA

Foreign Ministry Spokesman Accuses U.S. of Deliberately Linking DPRK to Mideast Disputes
Pyongyang, July 28 (KCNA) -- A spokesman for the DPRK Foreign Ministry Monday gave the following answer to the question put by KCNA as regards the fact that the U.S. and its followers are working hard to create anti-DPRK atmosphere by deliberately linking the DPRK to disputes in the Mideast:
A local court of the U.S. recently made a ruling that the DPRK was also to blame for the killing of Israelis by Hezbollah in Lebanon as it allegedly provided the organization with missiles and military assistance.
Meanwhile, Western media are floating a report that a contract on the purchase of missiles and communication equipment worth hundreds of thousands of U.S. dollars is being pushed forward between the DPRK and Hamas of Palestine.
This is utterly baseless sophism and sheer fiction let loose by the U.S. to isolate the DPRK internationally.
Lurking behind this propaganda is a sinister intention of the U.S. to justify its criminal acts of backing Israel driven into a tight corner by its recent unethical killings in the Gaza Strip of Palestine.
At the 21st extraordinary meeting of the UN Human Rights Council the U.S. was the only country that voted against a resolution on the situation in the Gaza Strip in favor of Israel when it was put on voting, becoming a target of international accusation.
Much upset by this, the U.S. is working hard to deliberately link the DPRK to the so-called "terrorist organizations" defined by it in a bid to divert the focus of international criticism to Pyongyang.
The U.S. is pulling up others under the pretexts of "terrorism", "killing of civilians" and the like, a gangster-like logic reminiscent of a thief crying "Stop the thief!"
The U.S. is a wrecker of global peace and security, kingdom of terrorism and chief culprit of international terrorism as it has supplied war hardware of various types to the south Korean puppet forces and is prodding them to ignite a war against the DPRK.
With neither lies nor fabrications can the U.S. cover up or falsify truth.


KIM JONG UN GIVES FIELD GUIDANCE TO KOSAN FRUIT FARM
Pyongyang, July 24 (KCNA) -- Kim Jong Un, first secretary of the Workers' Party of Korea, first chairman of the National Defence Commission of the DPRK and supreme commander of the Korean People's Army, provided field guidance to the Kosan Fruit Farm.
He mounted a newly built gazebo. Enjoying a bird's-eye view of the farm, he said with pleasure: "How nice the farm looks. The foot of Chol Pass has turned into a socialist fairyland and an ideal land of the people. If poets stand here, the scenery will make poetic sentiment flash upon them. This is, indeed, a sea of fruit trees!"
He said that "Thanks to the tireless efforts made by the members of the Construction Shock Brigade 618 to keep their promise made with leader Kim Jong Il and the devoted efforts of the employees of the farm, the world-startling changes took place here."
He looked round the newly arranged room dedicated to the history of the farm.
He recalled that the farm, which was established in 1947 under a far-reaching plan of President Kim Il Sung, has turned into the nation's leading fruit-producing base thanks to the devoted efforts of Kim Jong Il.
Noting that it is of great significance that such a large fruit farm has been built at the foot of Chol Pass associated with the Songun revolutionary leadership of Kim Jong Il, he said that it was Kim Jong Il who recorded the first page of the history of the farm which has turned into the world's leading young orchard.
He called for making all pages of the history of the farm shine forever by building the farm into a world class fruit producer and a land of bliss and producing more fruits for the people.
He looked round the newly built Wire Net Fence Factory.
Going round various places of the factory, he learned in detail about its construction and production there.
He highly praised the brigade for successfully building the factory as intended by the party, adding not only its interior and exterior but all aspects of the structure were excellently built.
Noting products of the factory are useful not only for the orchards but also for arranging parks, sports facilities, etc., he called for producing a lot of wire net fences for various uses.
Then he learnt about the growth of apple trees.
He asked how many apples a tree yields and how much an apple weighs before underscoring the need to make sure that the trees in all orchards of the farm are heavily laden with apples so that the sea of apples at the foot of Chol Pass is pervaded with fruit aroma and it is covered with apple trees.
Underlining the need to make efforts with an ambition to dominate the world fruit farming, he set a goal to be attained by the farm in a few years to come, taught ways for increasing the fruit production and promised to send necessary vehicles and equipment to the farm.
He visited the house of Kim Ju Song and Kim Kum Hui, a couple of discharged soldiers, congratulated them on their moving to a new house and had a photo taken with them.
He also had a photo taken with Ri Jong Su and Son In Ok, another couple of discharged soldiers, congratulating them on their moving to a new house.
He was pleased to hear that more than 2,000 families of workers of the farm were very happy with their newly built houses to which they moved.
He noted that officials and members of the Construction Shock Brigade 618 had done a lot of work, he was pleased with everything done by them and the Party Central Committee highly appreciated their labor feats.
And he reposed the deepest trust in them, calling on all units to earnestly learn from the revolutionary spirit of self-reliance displayed by the brigade in the efforts to implement the intention of the party.
Underscoring the need to unconditionally complete the project for rebuilding the fruit farm on an expansion basis before the date fixed by Kim Jong Il, he took a measure for mobilizing a strong construction force of the People's Army for the project.
He was accompanied by Hwang Pyong So, Ri Jae Il and Han Kwang Sang.

KIM JONG UN GUIDES ROCKET FIRING DRILL OF STRATEGIC FORCE OF KPA
Pyongyang, July 27 (KCNA) -- Supreme Commander of the Korean People's Army Kim Jong Un, first secretary of the Workers' Party of Korea and first chairman of the National Defence Commission of the DPRK, guided a rocket firing drill of the strategic force of the KPA on the spot.
The drill was staged on July 26, a day before the anniversary of the victory in the Fatherland Liberation War. It was conducted by a firepower strike unit of the strategic force of the KPA tasked to strike bases of the U.S. imperialist aggressor forces in south Korea.
He examined a firing plan mapped out in consideration of the present location of the U.S. imperialist aggressor forces' bases in south Korea and under the simulated conditions of the battle to strike and destroy them before guiding the drill.
The drill proved the high combat capability of the firepower strike unit and the perfect performance of its tactical rockets.
Kim Jong Un expressed his great satisfaction over a series of successful drills of the strategic force, saying: "Rocket test-fire drills were conducted many times recently to develop the Juche-based rocket science and technology and firing methods. As a result, the strategic force is fully ready to successfully carry out any firepower strike mission in modern warfare. The roar heard from today's firepower drill conducted to mark the war victory day is just like a thrilling gun report heralding the completion of the strategic force's combat preparations."
Stressing history can never be altered, concealed and cooked up, he recalled that the U.S. and the south Korean regime are staging a ridiculous charade of describing their past defeat in the war as "victorious one" through Obama's unjustifiable "speech" and Park Geun Hye's "presidential memorial address" made on the occasion of July 27, instead of drawing a lesson from their ignominious defeat in the past war.
He declared:
"Masters of the White House have been replaced by others since the 1950s. However, the U.S. harsh hostile policy toward the DPRK has not changed at all. It was the shameful tradition of the U.S. imperialists that they have sustained setbacks, hit hard in history, and it is the proud tradition of the DPRK that it has successfully foiled every reckless move pursued by the U.S., counting on its growing muscle. These law-governed two traditions will last forever in the future, too."
Whoever dares challenge the just cause of the service personnel and people of the DPRK is bound to meet a final ruin, he stressed, calling for wiping out the U.S. imperialist aggressor forces in south Korea and other forces following them on this land at an early date and accomplishing the historic cause of national reunification without fail.
He was accompanied by Hwang Pyong So, Ri Yong Gil, Yun Tong Hyon, Ri Pyong Chol, O Kum Chol and Pak Jong Chon.

The two teams played a good match by fully displaying the technique they have cultivated in their day-to-day training.
The April 25 Team beat its rival.
Kim Jong Un congratulated volleyballers on their successful match, expressing satisfaction over their high level of playing.
He underscored the need to round off Korean style sports technique, tactical system and training methods, put sports technique on a higher level and thus achieve signal successes in international games.
Putting the DPRK onto the position of a sports power is an important work to increase the national power in every way and demonstrate the indomitable spirit and dignity of Songun Korea before the whole world, he said, setting forth the tasks which would serve as guidelines for rapidly developing the nation's sports.
Among the spectators were Hwang Pyong So, O Kum Chol, Yun Tong Hyon, Pak Jong Chon, Choe Ryong Hae, Ri Jae Il, Han Kwang Sang, Kim Yong Hun and Ri Jong Mu.

LET US CARRY OUT THE GREAT LEADER COMRADE KIM IL SUNG'S INSTRUCTION FOR NATIONAL REUNIFICATION
(AUGUST 4, 1997)
  Our people will soon greet the 52nd anniversary of the liberation of our country, the historic event, by which the great leader Comrade Kim Il Sung opened the way to a new life for our nation.
  On this occasion our people look back with warm hearts upon the tireless efforts and the great achievements the respected leader made for the reunification of our country for half a century ever since the day of national liberation.
  The great leader Comrade Kim Il Sung strongly desired and worked hard all his life for the reunification of our country. He was unhappy more about the national sufferings caused by national division than about anything else, and took all the pains and put his heart and soul into the cause for national reunification till the last moment of his life in order to hand down a reunified country to posterity.
  To reunify the country in accordance with the noble idea of respected Comrade Kim Il Sung is the revolutionary duty and moral obligation of our Party and our people. It is a sacred national task devolving upon our generation. No matter what kind of difficulties and obstacles may stand in the way of national reunification, we must carry out the great leader Comrade Kim IlSung′s instructions for national reunification and fulfil the responsibility and duty our generation has assumed before the country and nation.

  The great leader Comrade Kim Il Sung is the sun of our nation and the lodestar of national reunification. He devoted all his life to the country and nation and made imperishable achievements in the cause of national reunification. By his preeminent ideas and leadership he pioneered the cause of national reunification, guided it victoriously, laid solid foundations to realize it, and opened the bright prospects for the reunification of the country.
  The question of national reunification arose as a result of the division of the country by foreign forces at the end of the Second World War. The history of half a century since the division of the country into north and south is a history of an acute struggle between the two conflicting lines of reunification and division, patriotism and treachery, and a history of the victory of patriotic forces that aspire after national reunification.
  Ever since the division of the country, the great leader Comrade Kim Il Sung regarded national reunification as the supreme task of our nation, consistently maintained the line of one Korea, the line of reunification, wisely led the struggle to reunify the country and strengthened and developed the reunification movement into a nationwide movement.
  The line of national reunification proposed and invariably maintained by the great leader is a line of thorough national independence for the complete sovereignty and independence of the country and nation and a truly patriotic line for the development of the country to be reunified and for national prosperity. The question of the reunification of our country is a question of putting an end to the foreign domination and intervention of south Korea, establishing national sovereignty throughout the country, linking again the blood ties of the divided nation, and realizing unity as one nation. If our nation, which has lived as a homogeneous nation in the same land for thousands of years, remains divided by foreign forces, it will be impossible to avoid national misfortune and calamities and free itself from foreign domination and subjugation. Reunification is the only correct way to establish the complete sovereignty of the country and nation, brighten the nation′s dignity and honour, and achieve the prosperity of the country and nation. The line of reunification enjoys unreserved support from all the Korean people because it reflects the fundamental interests and demand and unanimous wish and aspiration of our nation.
  In the complex and difficult situation in which the US imperialists′ occupation of south Korea and the manoeuvres of divisive forces at home and abroad against reunification were continuing, respected Comrade Kim Il Sung maintained the line of reunification firmly and consistently and led the reunification movement on his initiative. While strengthening the northern half of Korea into a bulwark for national reunification, the great leader ensured that the people in the northern half gave active support and encouragement to the south Korean people in their patriotic struggle for independence, democracy and national reunification without forgetting them even for a moment. He thwarted the challenge and the manoeuvres of the divisive forces at home and abroad against reunification at every step and developed the reunification movement steadily. It was our leader who developed the nationwide struggle to frustrate the manoeuvres of the flunkeyist and treacherous forces to keep the country divided by convening the historic joint conference of the representatives of political parties and public organizations from north and south Korea in the grim days when "separate elections and a separate government" were being cooked up in the name of the UN in south Korea immediately after liberation; it was our leader who roused all the Korean people to the struggle to check and thwart the manoeuvres of the divisive elements for "two Koreas" at a time when a sharp antagonism and struggle was going on between two lines, one for one Korea and the other for "two Koreas", in our country; it was also our leader who opened the way to dialogue and negotiations between north and south which had been totally out of contact, ensured success in adopting the north-south joint statement and agreements and opened a new phase in the movement to reunify the country. The great leader, who had immeasurably noble love for the country and nation, passed not a day without being concerned over the question of national reunification, nor did he take a single day′s rest in peace.
  Comrade Kim Il Sung worked energetically to strengthen international support for and solidarity with the movement for national reunification. Thanks to his strenuous external activities, the validity of our Party′s line of national reunification was widely known to political, public and press circles in various countries, international concern for the question of Korea′s reunification increased, and the world progressive people′s support for and solidarity with the movement for our country′s reunification grew stronger.
  Thanks to the great meritorious service rendered by the respected leader Comrade Kim Il Sung who adhered to the line of national reunification and devoted all his efforts to the reunification of the country, the reunification movement continued to develop, sweeping away the obstructive moves of the divisive forces, and became an indestructible force. The ardent desire of the nation for the reunification of the country is growing higher with each passing day, and all the Koreans in the north, south and abroad have turned out for the movement to reunify the country. The development of the reunification movement into a powerful nationwide movement, as we see today and its advance in the midst of worldwide interest and support and encouragement from progressives, proves a brilliant victory of the line of reunification over the line of division.
  The great leader Comrade Kim Il Sung set forth the three charters for national reunification which clarified the fundamental principles and methods of national reunification, and provided the guideline that must be maintained in accomplishing the cause of national reunification.
  The three principles of independence, peaceful reunification and great national unity are the cornerstones for national reunification which manifested the fundamental standpoint and fundamental way of solving the problem of national reunification by the efforts of the nation and in keeping with its will and interests. The three principles of national reunification are the great common programme of the nation which the north and south confirmed in their July 4 joint statement and proclaimed solemnly to the public at home and abroad.
  The ten-point programme of the great unity of the whole nation for the reunification of the country is a political programme to strengthen the motive force of national reunification by achieving the unity of the entire nation. This programme clearly shows the objective and the ideological basis of great national unity and its principles and methods in an all-round way.
  The plan of establishing the Democratic Confederal Republic of Koryo is a blueprint that shows the full picture of the state to be reunified and the method of its realization. It indicates the basic method of reunifying the country most reasonably and smoothly on the basis of tolerating the ideas and systems of the north and the south.
  The three principles of national reunification, the ten-point programme of the great unity of the whole nation and the plan of establishing the DCRK constitute the three charters for national reunification by which Comrade Kim Il Sung elaborated the basic principles and methods of national reunification into an integral system on the basis of his great Juche idea and his valuable experience of the struggle to reunify the country. The three charters of national reunification are permeated with the spirit of national independence regarding national sovereignty and dignity as lifeblood and embody his noble love for the country and nation for reunifying the country peacefully by achieving north-south reconciliation and the great unity of the entire nation. The three charters clarify the fairest and most reasonable and rational way of reunifying the country at the earliest date in keeping with the real conditions in our country where different ideas and systems exist in its north and south for a long time and in accordance with the
entire nation′s aspirations to reunification.
  Because the great leader provided the three charters of national reunification, our nation is in a position to develop the struggle for national reunification with the clear objective, direction, confidence and courage and to realize its cherished desire for its reunification successfully by its united effort. The three charters of national reunification are, indeed, the banner of national reunification as well as the justest and most realistic fighting programme for reunifying the country independently and peacefully.
  The great leader Comrade Kim Il Sung rallied the entire nation under the banner of great national unity, prepared the driving force of national reunification and strengthened it further.
  Our nation is the motive force of reunifying the country, and its strength lies in great national unity. When our own force of reunification is prepared, the victory of the cause of national reunification is assured.
  Regarding patriotism and the spirit of national independence as the basis of national unity, Comrade Kim Il Sung
made it the principle of great national unity to subordinate everything to the cause of national reunification, transcending the differences in thoughts, ideas, political views and religion, and led all the people aspiring after reunification, regardless of their past records, to the way for reunification and patriotism with great generosity and magnanimity. He put forward the slogan for national unity, "Those with strength, devote their strength; those with knowledge, offer their knowledge; and those with money, contribute their money!" and encouraged the Korean people from all walks of life to help towards the cause of national reunification, with the mind of loving the country and the nation. His thoughts and ideas of great national unity and his noble love for humanity and the nation were the source of strength that encouraged the Korean compatriots from all sections to set out courageously on the road of national unity and national reunification.
  Comrade Kim Il Sung attached great importance to forming the all-nation united front and energetically led the work of uniting the reunification forces in the north, south and abroad. Basing himself on the experience of the anti-Japanese national united front during the anti-Japanese revolutionary struggle, he put forward the policy of forming the great national united front for the country′s reunification and wisely guided the struggle to implement it. As a result, a great advance was made in the work for organizing the compatriots in the north, south and abroad under the banner of national reunification. When the movement for the reunification of the country developed into a movement involving all the nation and their ardent desire for national reunification soared as never before, a Pan-National Rally representing the Koreans in the north, south and abroad was held and the National Alliance for the Country′s Reunification representing the reunification will of the entire nation was born. The formation of the National Alliance
for the Country′s Reunification is an important success achieved in strengthening the motive force of the country′s
reunification and developing the reunification movement onto a higher stage.
  Today the motive force of reunification, the patriotic cause, is expanded and strengthened on a national scale involving the north, south and abroad and cemented more firmly; it is advancing vigorously towards the independent and peaceful reunification of the country, overwhelming the flunkeyist, treacherous, divisive forces.
  The exploits which the great leader Comrade Kim Il Sung accomplished on the road of the country′s reunification is the priceless heritage for our people and nation and a solid foundation on which to reunify the country. His lifelong efforts dedicated to the country and nation and his great services to the noble cause of national reunification and independence will shine forever in the history of our country.

U.S. AND S. KOREAN AUTHORITIES WARNED OF THEIR RECKLESS ACTS
Pyongyang, July 21 (KCNA) -- A spokesman for the Policy Department of the National Defence Commission of the DPRK on July 20 issued a statement condemning the U.S. and its followers for kicking up a campaign over the DPRK's legitimate measures to bolster up its capability for self-defence.
The statement said:
Strategic force units and other units of the ground, naval and air and anti-air forces of the Korean People's Army have recently conducted a series of drills with various missions under the simulated conditions of an actual war to bolster up the capability for self-defence such as the ones for ultra-precision tactical rocket firing and firing drills of diverse artillery pieces.
The service personnel and the people of the DPRK are greatly encouraged by the signal successes made in these drills of KPA units. The peace- and justice-loving people in the world are expressing admiration at the shining successes of the service personnel and the people of the DPRK.
It is against this backdrop that only the U.S. and its ally the Park Geun Hye group and some other undesirable forces are behaving mischievously, revealing their sinister intentions. The U.S. grumbled as if tactical rockets of the KPA had gone into actions to strike its mainland, claiming "north Korea is posing an unusual and special threat to the U.S."
It is terming the routine drills of the KPA a politically-motivated low-profile provocation and successive military threats to the allies in the region. The south Korean authorities are echoing the U.S. claim by asserting the tactical rocket firing and firing drills of artillery pieces by the KPA are a retaliation against their refusal of the DPRK's special proposal and its government's statement, a dangerous provocation to escalate the military tensions and a deliberate threat to them. They went the lengths of letting the UN Security Council, a mechanism which has lost its impartiality long ago, kick up much fuss in a bid to mislead public opinion. 

Some weak-willed countries are blindly joining in such odd charade. Clinging to the malodorous coattails of the U.S., they are going so reckless as to vie with each other to hug poor-looking Park Geun Hye.
In view of all these ridiculous ruckuses being staged by making profound confusion of right and wrong, the Policy Department of the NDC of the DPRK once again serves a strong warning to the U.S. and the south Korean authorities, their prime movers, reflecting the voices of the service personnel and the people of the DPRK.
The U.S. and the south Korean authorities should properly know what words "provocation" and "threat" mean before wagging their tongues. If the tactical rocket firing of the KPA is a "provocation" to the U.S. and a threat to regional stability and peace, then what should be said of the countless number of strategic missiles launched by the U.S. and the DPRK-targeted war drills frequently staged by it together with the south Korean military gangsters after bringing its forces to other country?
The real provocations and threats made to the Korean peninsula are the whole gamut of political and military moves being pushed forward by the U.S., pursuant to its hostile policy toward the DPRK and its belligerent military strategy. In other words, the reckless intrusions into the waters of the DPRK side perpetrated by the warmongers of the south Korean military almost every day at the instigation of the U.S. are typical provocations.
The U.S. and the south Korean authorities should not resort to brazen-faced brigandish acts reminiscent of a thief brandishing a club. The U.S., an arch criminal making provocations and threats, is kicking up high-intensity war drills for aggression every day in the land, waters and sky of other country. The U.S. and the south Korean authorities who are hell-bent on confrontation with the compatriots in the north at the former's beck and call are terming the military drills for self-defence conducted by the DPRK in its own land, waters and sky a "provocation" and a "threat." What are suitable words to accuse such impudent and brigandish behavior?
This is nothing but a shameless act of a burglar rudely behaving in face of the master of a house trying to protect his house by himself. Such hooliganism may work somewhere else but can never work in this land being safeguarded by the service personnel and people of the DPRK.
The more desperately the U.S. and the south Korean authorities resort to gangster-like hostile acts, the more deadly retaliatory actions of Korean style they will face. This will be like a bolt from the blue.
The DPRK has already done everything it could to mend the north-south relations and achieve the reunification, peace and prosperity of the country through its crucial proposal and open letter in January, special proposal in June and government statement in July. What remains to be done at present is to make a final choice. 

The U.S. and the south Korean authorities should no longer behave recklessly, daring talk about "provocation" and "threat" from someone. If they persist in doing so, all the self-defensive deterrent forces of the DPRK will keep themselves fully ready to punish all undesirable forces in the world, strikingly demonstrate its invincible might and strongly counter their moves through its practical retaliatory actions of justice.
DPRK FOREIGN MINISTRY BLASTS UNSC'S PRESS STATEMENT CRITICAL OF ITS LAUNCH OF SHORT-RANGE MISSILES
Pyongyang, July 19 (KCNA) -- The UN Security Council at its informal consultative meeting held on July 17 staged a farce of publishing a press statement terming the DPRK's launch of even short-range missiles a "violation of its resolutions."
The Foreign Ministry of the DPRK in a statement on Saturday said all the military measures taken by the Korean People's Army including tactical rocket firing are an exercise of the right to self-defence to protect the sovereignty of the country and the security of the nation from the U.S. nuclear threats and moves for aggression from A to Z.
This year the DPRK made a series of positive peace proposals ranging from the crucial proposal of its National Defence Commission and its special proposal to the statement of its government and has taken practical measures pursuant to them, the statement noted, and continued: The U.S., however, staged Key Resolve and Foal Eagle joint military exercises in succession together with the south Korean puppet forces and kicked off the largest-ever combined aerial drill in the wake of the large-scale joint landing exercises since 1993.
The UNSC persistently overlooked the U.S. madcap war maneuvers for aggression and nuclear threat and took issue with the inevitable option taken by the DPRK to cope with them and censured it. This is absolutely intolerable. If the UNSC is to perform its mission for ensuring global peace and security, it should call into question the offensive, threatening and provocative joint military exercises of the U.S. and the south Korean puppet forces.
How the UNSC approaches the said exercises will be a yardstick to assess its impartiality and judge whether it can contribute to global peace and security both in name and in reality or not. Now that the UNSC serves the purpose of the U.S. hostile moves against the DPRK, bereft of its impartiality, the DPRK is left with no option but to bolster up its muscle to protect itself by its own efforts.
No matter how fair-minded and just one may be, one is bound to fall victim to big powers if one is weak, and it is possible to protect genuine peace only when one builds its muscle strong enough to deter any force from provoking one. This is the lesson and truth taught by history. 
The further the U.S. escalates its nuclear threat and blackmail, the greater efforts the DPRK will channel into bolstering up its nuclear deterrence for self-defence. As long as the U.S. and the south Korean puppet forces persist in their joint military exercises for aggression, the DPRK's counter-actions will be put on an annual and regular basis.

Any conflict which may take place in the course of the Korean People's Army's tactical rocket firing and other intensified retaliatory drills to cope with the U.S ceaseless war maneuvers in south Korea and its vicinity may spill over to a war. In case an unpredictable situation is created on the Korean peninsula, the U.S. and the UNSC which instigated and patronized it will be wholly responsible for the development as it compelled the DPRK to take such inevitable option.
Kim Jong Un Provides Field Guidance to Songchongang Net-Weaving Factory and Plastic Tube Shop
Pyongyang, July 18 (KCNA) -- Supreme Commander of the Korean People's Army (KPA) Kim Jong Un, first secretary of the Workers' Party of Korea (WPK) and first chairman of the National Defence Commission (NDC) of the DPRK, gave field guidance to the Songchongang Net-weaving Factory and plastic tube shop of Enterprise No. 1521 of the KPA.He looked round the mosaic depicting smiling President Kim Il Sung and leader Kim Jong Il.
He was pleased to see the mosaic erected by the officials and employees at their enterprise with profound reverence and the yard in front of it and its environment face-lifted. He went round the newly arranged room dedicated to the history of the enterprise. He said that the enterprise established under the far-reaching plan of the President made a great contribution to the development of the national economy under the loving care of Kim Jong Il in the past period.
Noting that the appearance of the net-weaving factory and plastic tube shop at the enterprise helps the enterprise emerge a general factory playing a big role in the building of a rich and powerful nation, he recollected the day he visited it last year. Going round the net-weaving factory and plastic tube shop, he acquainted himself in detail with production there and management activities.
He highly praised the enterprise for waging a dynamic drive to keep the production going at a high rate at the modern factory and shop newly built under the leadership of the party. He said that the factory and shop producing nets, ropes and plastic tubes badly needed by various fields including the fruit growing, fishery industry and construction are the nation's precious assets, though they are not big in their scale.
Saying that the demands for nets, ropes and plastic tubes are on the daily increase, he instructed the enterprise to boost their production depending on the production foundation already laid. "It is advisable for the factory and shop to improve the quality of products and their packing to be favored by the users and newly arrange a products show room," he said.
Going round the remodeled cultural hall, he asked how many seats it has and how it is being operated and appreciated its successful remodeling. Watching the visual aid materials displayed on the walls of the corridor of the hall, he underscored the need to effectively conduct the education of employees in various forms and by diverse methods and direct efforts to the education aimed to implant the anti-imperialist, anti-U.S. class consciousness into their minds as required by the prevailing situation, in particular.
He was accompanied by KPA Vice Marshal Hwang Pyong So, director of the KPA General Political Bureau, and Han Kwang Sang, department director of the C.C. the WPK, and Army Lieut. General Ma Won Chun, director of the Designing Department of the NDC.

Kim Jong Un Guides Performance of KPA Art Squad
Pyongyang, July 18 (KCNA) -- Supreme Commander of the Korean People's Army (KPA) Kim Jong Un, first secretary of the Workers' Party of Korea and first chairman of the National Defence Commission of the DPRK, guided the performance given by the art squad of the large-combined unit of KPA 324.
Put on the stage were colorful numbers of diverse forms such as male chorus "Revolutionary Armed Forces Uphold Leadership of Marshal Kim Jong Un Only", female solo "Voice of My Heart", poem recital "Marshal on Frontline", female sextet "Joy of the People" and trumpet and song "'I Know It,' Answer of Loyalty ".
The performers impressively represented the invincible might of the revolutionary armed forces of Mt. Paektu grown to be matchlessly strong army under the leadership of the supreme commander and the ardent loyalty of the service personnel serving the army with longing to see him. He said that the members of the art squad presented numbers of great ideological and educational values, expressing expectation and belief that the creators and artistes of the art squad would dynamically conduct revolutionary and militant performing activities in the future, too.
Noting art performances with strong influence and appeal are of weighty significance in the ideological education of the service personnel, he gave instructions which would serve as guidelines for the performing activities of the KPA.

U.S. and S. Korean Authorities Warned of Their Reckless Acts
Pyongyang, July 21 (KCNA) -- A spokesman for the Policy Department of the National Defence Commission of the DPRK on July 20 issued a statement condemning the U.S. and its followers for kicking up a campaign over the DPRK's legitimate measures to bolster up its capability for self-defence.
The statement said:
Strategic force units and other units of the ground, naval and air and anti-air forces of the Korean People's Army have recently conducted a series of drills with various missions under the simulated conditions of an actual war to bolster up the capability for self-defence such as the ones for ultra-precision tactical rocket firing and firing drills of diverse artillery pieces.
The service personnel and the people of the DPRK are greatly encouraged by the signal successes made in these drills of KPA units.
The peace- and justice-loving people in the world are expressing admiration at the shining successes of the service personnel and the people of the DPRK.
It is against this backdrop that only the U.S. and its ally the Park Geun Hye group and some other undesirable forces are behaving mischievously, revealing their sinister intentions. The U.S. grumbled as if tactical rockets of the KPA had gone into actions to strike its mainland, claiming "north Korea is posing an unusual and special threat to the U.S."
It is terming the routine drills of the KPA a politically-motivated low-profile provocation and successive military threats to the allies in the region.
The south Korean authorities are echoing the U.S. claim by asserting the tactical rocket firing and firing drills of artillery pieces by the KPA are a retaliation against their refusal of the DPRK's special proposal and its government's statement, a dangerous provocation to escalate the military tensions and a deliberate threat to them.
They went the lengths of letting the UN Security Council, a mechanism which has lost its impartiality long ago, kick up much fuss in a bid to mislead public opinion.
Some weak-willed countries are blindly joining in such odd charade. Clinging to the malodorous coattails of the U.S., they are going so reckless as to vie with each other to hug poor-looking Park Geun Hye.
In view of all these ridiculous ruckuses being staged by making profound confusion of right and wrong, the Policy Department of the NDC of the DPRK once again serves a strong warning to the U.S. and the south Korean authorities, their prime movers, reflecting the voices of the service personnel and the people of the DPRK.
The U.S. and the south Korean authorities should properly know what words "provocation" and "threat" mean before wagging their tongues.
If the tactical rocket firing of the KPA is a "provocation" to the U.S. and a threat to regional stability and peace, then what should be said of the countless number of strategic missiles launched by the U.S. and the DPRK-targeted war drills frequently staged by it together with the south Korean military gangsters after bringing its forces to other country?
The real provocations and threats made to the Korean peninsula are the whole gamut of political and military moves being pushed forward by the U.S., pursuant to its hostile policy toward the DPRK and its belligerent military strategy.
In other words, the reckless intrusions into the waters of the DPRK side perpetrated by the warmongers of the south Korean military almost every day at the instigation of the U.S. are typical provocations.
The U.S. and the south Korean authorities should not resort to brazen-faced brigandish acts reminiscent of a thief brandishing a club.
The U.S., an arch criminal making provocations and threats, is kicking up high-intensity war drills for aggression every day in the land, waters and sky of other country. The U.S. and the south Korean authorities who are hell-bent on confrontation with the compatriots in the north at the former's beck and call are terming the military drills for self-defence conducted by the DPRK in its own land, waters and sky a "provocation" and a "threat." What are suitable words to accuse such impudent and brigandish behavior?
This is nothing but a shameless act of a burglar rudely behaving in face of the master of a house trying to protect his house by himself.

Kim Jong Un Guides Match for Examining Men's Football of National Sports Team
Pyongyang, July 20 (KCNA) -- Kim Jong Un, first secretary of the Workers' Party of Korea, first chairman of the National Defence Commission of the DPRK and supreme commander of the Korean People's Army, guided a match for examining the men's football of the National Sports Team which will take part in the 17th Asian Games.
The National Sports Team played the match with the Jebi Team.
It trounced its rival 12:0.
Kim Jong Un expressed satisfaction over the fact that the men footballers of the National Sports Team fully displayed high football technique, mental power and persevering fighting spirit and had a photo taken with them.
The men footballers of the National Sports Team have conducted good training to take part in the games, he said.
Great are expectations and interest of our people in the games, he said, adding: "Sports persons should take part in the games and give full play to the noble spirit of sports, the stamina of the nation and the spirit of fair play and thus positively contribute to promoting reconciliation and unity of fellow countrymen, friendship and peace with various countries of the world."
"The participation of the DPRK's players in the 17th Asian Games offers an important occasion in improving the relations between the north and the south and removing distrust between them", he said, adding "it is our principled stand that the inviolable sports should not be a political bargaining chip of the undesirable forces".
He expressed expectation and conviction that sports persons of the DPRK including the men footballers of the National Sports Team who will take part in the games would put greater spurs to training.
Among the spectators were Choe Ryong Hae and Kim Yang Gon, secretaries of the C.C., the WPK, Hwang Pyong So, Ri Yong Gil, Hyon Yong Chol and other commanding officers of the KPA.
